Want to learn more about how your equipment operates and learn valuable care techniques from a dive professional? Then check into the PADI Equipment Specialist program. You'll need to be at least a PADI Scuba Diver (PADI Junior Scuba Diver or equivalent) and be 10 or older.

During your PADI Equipment Specialist program, you'll familiarize yourself with the operation and maintenance of your own personal equipment. You may also be given the opportunity by your instructor to review new or unfamiliar dive equipment.

The program is not designed to be an extensive equipment-repair program, however, it does provide you with the following:

  • Theory, principles and operation of dive equipment.
  • Routine, recommended care and maintenance procedures, and equipment storage.
  • Common problems with equipment and recommended professional maintenance procedures. (May include a demonstration of repair procedures.)
  • Simple suggestions for comfortable equipment configurations and an introduction to new equipment (optional trying of new or unfamiliar equipment in confined water may be included).
  • To learn more about your dive equipment, stop by FantaSea Scuba & Travel and sign up for the PADI Equipment Specialist program today and purchase the appropriate references.

Dive equipment repair and maintenance should only be carried out by dive professionals that have received the appropriate training.
